Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban is the king of college football, so it should come as no surprise that there is some jealousy among the other coaches in the Southeastern Conference. The latest coach to take a shot at Saban is Florida Gators offensive line coach Tim Davis, who coached under Saban during his brief stint in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins.
Davis was speaking at an event in Melbourne, Florida when he decided to comment on Saban while he was praising his current boss Will Muschamp, who also coached under Saban with the Dolphins.
Since Saban’s last name is just one letter away from “Satan,” I guess it is only appropriate that Davis called Saban the devil.
“[UF head coach] Will [Muschamp] and I go back to the Miami Dolphins,” Davis said, via 247 Sports’ GatorBait.net. “I’ve always wanted to work with Will. Will’s got a plan. Will coached under the devil himself for seven years. I only did three. He did seven. And his DNA is not any different than Nick.”
Not only is Saban the devil, according to Davis, but he has a crappy personality.
”[Muschamp's] like the other guy, only he’s got a personality,” Davis said. “He’ll smile at you. He’ll talk to you. You understand? That’s what he’s all about. That’s Will. I’m proud to work for him.”
It’s a good thing that smiling doesn’t win championships.
Saban is doing mighty well for himself, despite what is perceived as a poor personality. If he doesn’t want to talk or smile, that is okay, because he is currently focusing on winning a third-straight BCS National Championship while everyone else is worrying about what he does with his facial muscles.
